Description

Šinahuttum, later known as Sanahuitta, was a Bronze Age Assyrian city believed to have been northeast of Hattusa, the capital of the Hittite Empire in the late Bronze Age, near modern Boğazkale in Turkey. The city is mentioned in Assyrian sources 14 times and was noted for its donkey market and wool exchange.

Location

The likely location of Šinahuttum was identified by historians using statistical methods to interrogate the records of merchants found at Kanes near the modern Turkish city of Kayseri.
